Easy recipe for slime (also
called oobleck, or flubber!)
Here is a super easy recipe
to make slime, a gooey substance that is fun to squeeze and play with it.
. It only requires two ingredients for this recipe: glue and regular
laundry detergent. You probably already have these at your house!
You do not need any borax or cornstarch like other recipes. You can also
add some food coloring if you like, but it is not necessary.
You will need:
Elmers glue (or any white school
liquid laundry detergent (any
a spoon or rubber spatula
Step 1. Pour about 1/4
cup of glue into a bowl You can use a measuring
cup to measure it if you like, or you can just estimate it since exact
measurements are not necessary. Just get it close.
Step 2. Add about 1 Tablespoon
of liquid laundry detergent. You can use any brand of
liquid detergent. We used a generic brand similar to the brand name "Tide"
laundry detergent. You can measure it or just estimate the amount.
Step 3. Stir well You may need to add more
liquid laundry detergent if it seems to be too sticky and isn't slimey
enough. After a few minutes it will take on the nice oooey gooey
texture of slime! The longer you work it, the smoother and gooier
it will get. It will last for several days if you take care of it.
Be sure to have your parent's
permission to make this, and play with it only in designated areas.
Store it in a zip lock baggie to use later. This probably is NOT
a good game to play in the car on a road trip, but it is a good activity
just to keep busy and have fun on a rainy day.
Caution: Do NOT get
this substance on your carpet or clothing! It is hard to remove especially
if it dries. If it is still moist, it can be removed with water and
gentle rubbing with a wet wash cloth.
